Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

Sam Wood's Oscar-nominated small-town tale is one of the darkest melodramas Hollywood made in the 1940s, full of neurotic personalities and perverse secrets.

John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis

...while episodic and sentimental and filled with all kinds of unlikely turns of events, there is no denying the characters are endearing and the ending uplifting.

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A wonderful guilty pleasure potboiler enchanced by a magnificent Korngold score and fine acting from Ronald Reagan in the performance of his career. Only lead Robert Cummings is weak as Paris Mitchell; just imagine James Cagney in the role!

| Original Score: 4/5

The film is dark, incredibly so for a mainstream movie before World War II.

Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films

Kings Row (1942) combines a turn-of-the-century setting with a small-town melodrama uncovering evil and depravity.
